The Berenstain Bears continue their storybook adventures in this 8×8 about reusing and recycling.

The Berenstain Bears live in a wonderful place filled with green grass, blue skies, and lots of furry friends. But on a fishing trip at the creek, the Bear family discovers that the town dump is overflowing! Can the Berenstain Bears find a pollution solution before their beloved Bear Country is filled with garbage?

We love our Berenstain Bears books and especially for the things they can help teach or reinforce, in this case that would be conservation and recycling. This is great because it doesn’t just jump on the issue and preach it out, it comes around the corner from praising what beauty there is to explain how things can get messed up and then providing a solution for helping to better things. There is also a page on the back flap with tips for what readers and their families can do to better save water and bits of the environment. A perfect introduction for my preschooler to recycling and conservation of our Earth’s natural resources.

*Thanks to HarperCollins for providing a copy for review.*

Stan and Jan Berenstain began writing the Berenstain Bears series in 1962, with The Big Honey Hunt. Since then, more than 250 Berenstain Bears books have been published and sales of the series have exceeded 260 million copies. Stan and Jan have left behind a legacy of arguably the best-selling children’s book series ever. Making the books has long been a family affair, with son Mike writing and illustrating new stories about everyone’s favorite Bear family. You can visit the Berenstains online at
